That's an expensive dinner plan, Sting



Tbdsting071807 Remember how Sting’s old personal chef sued the singer and his wife after she was fired? Well, an employment tribunal ordered the Police-man and wife Trudie Styler to pay 41-year-old Jane Martin $51,000 in compensation for her sex-discrimination claim, the AP says.

Martin won the dispute back in May after being canned by Styler following Martin’s pregnancy in 2005, and the panel hearing the claim agreed she had been unlawfully dismissed by Lake House Estate (Sting’s and Styler’s management company). But being ordered to mete out such a high amount has left a sour taste in the couple’s mouths — they’ve already announced they’re appealing.
